I would hat to be the CO of this squadron. On the one hand, it’s clearly in violation of the USMC’s sexual harassment policies.
On the other hand, it’s going to be very tough to punish someone when you’re laughing.
An estimated 17.7 million American women and 2.78 men have been the victim of an attempted or completed rape. Victims of a sexual assault are three times as likely to suffer from depression, six times more likely to suffer from PTSD, 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol, 26 times more likely to use drugs, and four times as likely to contemplate suicide. Adolescent female rape victims may be over three times as likely to attempt suicide.

one day schrodinger’s rapist might be one of those things that only history buffs and trivia geeks have heard of

SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.
Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW.
I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.
FY Angelina Jolie
My good deeds are secret: words whispered in a small room with a strong woman who can only let go when the door’s closed.
My good deeds are hidden- in midnight kitchens with mothers who can’t find their sons or catch their breath.
My good deeds are silent- simply present with her in a hospital room that still smells like the way he hurt her.
My good deeds stay with me- they cling to my clothes while I prepare my dinner, while I bathe my daughter, and while I choose what I will wear
It is so easy to recognize a hero that kicks in doors, that stitches wounds, that arrests perpetrators. It is almost impossible to see- let alone honor- those who are there in the aftermath- the victim’s rights advocates, the shelter staff, the peer counselors.
But they are there- and they are wonderful.
